50 Shades of Red


Red lips can be a scary thing, especially if you don't ever wear lip color or like to experiment with makeup in the first place. There's more to it then just picking up a random shade and wearing it, first and for most know what shade of red looks best on your skin tone. 

If you have pale skin find shades that are a mixture of coral, peach, and orange hues mixed with the red, a brick matte red with orange hues also looks good. For Medium skin tones cherry, cranberry shades look best, you can also pull off the most colors so go for a brighter red. Dark skin tones should go with deep reds burgundy, plum, berry reds. Before applying your lipstick always exfoliate and moisturize so your lips are prepped and not flakey. Lining your lips with a red liner also will really help define your lips and guide the lipstick on easier.
